Glue For Cementing Paper And Leather

Take Isinglass and Parchment

each one ounce, Sugar Candy and Gum Tragacanth each two drachms, add to

them one ounce Water, and boil the whole together till the mixture

appears (when cold) of the consistency of Glue; then pour it into any

form you please. If this glue be wet with the tongue, and rubbed on the

edge of paper, silk or leather that are to be cemented, they will, on

being laid together, pressed tightly and suffered to dry, be as firmly

united as other parts of the substance. It is fine to seal letters.
